Abena is from London, UK. She moved to the U.S. in 2009 and first enjoyed the beaches of Santa Monica in California before moving to the East coast in New York City. She's an adept of fitness and well-being, having practiced Yoga, Spinning and Zumba classes but she truly found her calling in Pilates. The method made her stronger, giving her more control over her body movement and posture. This satisfying feeling cannot be described but rather experienced and as the owner of Abena Pilates, her mission is to make people feel like her... fabulous!
Abena holds a Romana certification in Pilates and the ELDOA Level 1&2 certification from the Legacy Performance and Integrated Wellness Center, based upon the work of Guy VOYER, DO.
Abena joined Garland Studio as an apprentice and became a certified Romana instructor under the mentorship of Trish Garland.
When Abena moved to New York in 2016, she was welcomed as an instructor at True Pilates, home of the Romana certification program.
Abena had the privilege to join Mari Winsor's studio. The opportunity provided her the platform to perfect her teaching style.
